Since Luxembourg’s public finances are considered to be very solid, investors’ money is almost as safe here as in Germany. The state is officially liable but only up to 100,000 euros.

Bank11 is able to hold on to third place. The German institute with correspondingly secure deposit insurance accepts credit balances of up to 100,000 euros at a promotional interest rate of 1.4 percent. Bank11 guarantees this interest rate for four months.

For the sake of completeness, it should be mentioned that Volksbank Hochtaunus (“Meine Bank”) and OPEL Bank also offer attractive interest rates of 1.5 percent on overnight money. However, these cannot be completed via the FOCUS online comparison, but only directly from the banks.

Important detail: OPEL Bank accepts credit balances of up to one million euros for interest from new customers. Because OPEL now belongs to the French PSA group (Peugeot, Citröen), the bank is also located there. As with Renault, the French deposit insurance system, which is theoretically “only” valid up to 100,000 euros, applies.

Existing customers currently have the best cards with Renault Bank. The French raised the call money rate on existing accounts to 0.7 percent in October. The DKB, which has so far paid its customers only 0.01 percent on call money, wants to raise the interest rate to 0.4 percent from December 1st. The offer applies to both new and existing customers and is linked to the opening of a current account.

ING will also increase the interest rate for its existing customers to 0.3 percent on December 1, 2022. New customers at Dirk Nowitzki’s bank, on the other hand, already receive 1.0 percent. Existing Consorsbank customers will only receive 0.3 percent from January 1, 2023. Surprisingly, the bank, which is courting new customers with attractive conditions, has so far paid its existing customers no interest at all on overnight money (0.00 percent).

In the case of the German bank mentioned, the German deposit protection fund of the Federal Association of German Banks (BdB, in the case of ING), the savings banks (in the case of the DKB) and the cooperative banks (“Meine Bank”) also attack, so that customer balances there are even higher are secured.
